Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Trout came through his two-run single against Royals starter Edinson Volquez in the second inning. Over the weekend, he fouled a ball off his foot and took time at DH to help nurse the injury, but he was back roaming center on Tuesday. After a relatively sluggish start to the 2016 campaign, the 24-year-old phenom has turned it up of late, with hits in nine of his last 10 games. His numbers figure to be up there with the best of them by the end of the season.

Mike Trout will serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Royals.

Trout fouled a ball off his foot during Saturday's game, so serving as the DH will allow him to get somewhat of a breather. Rafael Ortega will start in center field Monday while Ji-Man Choi will play left.
Apr 25 - 6:02 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Saturday's victory over the Mariners.

Trout has been so good for so long that his quality performances have become rather pedestrian. He's hitting .302/.408/.508 with three homers and 12 walks in 76 plate appearances, and we're all busy drooling over Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Trout is still only 24 years old and, speaking of the Nationals' superstar, hit just one fewer homer than Harper did in 2015. He remains the best player in the game until further notice.
Apr 24 - 1:16 AM

Mike Trout went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer and two walks to lead the Angels past the White Sox 3-2 on Thursday.

That's more like it. Trout is back up to .286/.397/.446 for the season now. He still has just seven runs scored and six RBI in 16 games; unfortunately, that Angels lineup is going to hold him back a bit all yuear.
Apr 21 - 5:43 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with three singles in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox.

Trout had himself three hits. The Angels, as a team, had four hits. The only non-Trout batter to manage a knock against Chris Sale and the White Sox pen was Rafael Ortega. While Trout is off to a somewhat sluggish start and is slashing just .259/.359/.370 with a singular one home run and four RBI over 54 at-bats, it should go without saying that there is no need to panic. The slugger's numbers should be up there with the best of 'em by the end of the 2016 campaign.
Apr 20 - 5:31 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-5 with a double and three runs scored in Wednesday's win over the A's.

Trout also notched his first steal of the season. In late February, he indicated that one of his goals was to steal more bases in 2016. He swiped 82 of them combined in the 2012 and 2013 seasons, but has just 27 combined in the two years since. Last year, he managed just 11 steals.
Apr 13 - 6:58 PM

Mike Trout's first homer was a two-run shot off Sonny Gray in the Angels' 4-1 win over the A's on Monday.

It was crushed, too. Trout is due to get going after a slow first week at the plate. He entered this one at .200/.320/.250 in six games.
Apr 12 - 1:35 AM

Mike Trout went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

That makes for two consecutive 0-for-4 Trout outings. Cue the falling sky. While an 0-for-8 start is less than shiny, the star outfielder should finish the 2016 season as, once again, one of the most productive players in the bigs. He posted a career-high slugging percentage of .590 last season.
Apr 6 - 12:57 AM

Mike Trout (illness) will return to the Angels' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

He's back after missing two games with the flu. Trout will hit third and play center field. The consensus No. 1 pick in fantasy has had a monster spring, hitting .388 with four homers, 15 RBI and three steals.
Apr 2 - 5:24 PM

Mike Trout is not playing Thursday due to the flu.

He's expected back in there Friday and will be fine come Opening Day. Trout is batting .388 with four homers this spring.
Mar 31 - 7:02 PM

Mike Trout had an RBI single and a solo homer in Friday’s 11-3 win over the Athletics in Cactus League action.

Trout has now homered in back-to-back games and owns a healthy .395 batting average and 1.190 OPS this spring. You know, just case you needed any convincing to take him No. 1 overall in your fantasy draft this weekend.
Mar 25 - 7:53 PM

Mike Trout launched a three-run homer in a 6-5 win over the White Sox on Thursday.

Chris Sale won the first two rounds this afternoon, but Trout finally got to him with a go-ahead blast in the sixth. He can only be denied for so long, even against one of the game’s best pitchers. Trout is batting .384 with a 1.134 OPS this spring and once again looks like the consensus No. 1 overall pick in fantasy leagues.
Mar 24 - 7:49 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-2 with a double, triple, three runs scored and an RBI in Wednesday's 13-13 tie with the Dodgers.

Spring, summer, autumn, probably winter -- Trout is impervious to the seasons. After hitting .299/.402/.590 with 41 homers and 90 RBI last year, the all-universe phenom should once again be a top-tier fantasy option in 2016. He won't turn 25 years old until August.
Mar 9 - 8:20 PM

Mike Trout belted his first Cactus League home run and also drew a pair of walks over three plate appearances in Monday's loss to the White Sox.

Trout took Erik Johnson deep with a two-run shot in the third inning. He also stole his first base of spring training in a nice all-around game. Trout said last month that he'd like to pilfer more bases this season after swiping a career-low 11 in 2015 on 18 attempts. The dwindling of his running game has made him less than a slam dunk for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts this spring.
